The days are numbered before Lyndsie Alguire really starts popping up in our daily lives. Her evocative sounds and deep storytelling teeter on the edge of pop and experimental music, permitting Lyndsie to drench her sweet, simple and delicate melodies into heavy static and profound, complex layers of field-recordings. Her compositions wash over you like a fresh beam of spring morning light, showcasing the minute particles of dust floating into the day.
This also marks the first release of our new series ‘ The Fold ‘. All music will be totally free to download but you can also contribute to the Camomille label group project and buy the limited edition Poster + CDR release, this time featuring photography by the ever talented Sofia Ajram.
It is availble in a limited edition 8.5×11 poster+cdr ( 50 copies ) as well as a free download.

A live impromptu live set from Ionosonde Recordings resident artist – Telegraphy. Using tracks from his latest album Kurz-above , Telegraphy creates different pallets of sound through heavily processed dubbly delays. The textural differences from “Kurz-above [iono-12] can be apparent in this extended track which begins as if you were in the deepest part of the ocean where everything has a fluidity quality about it. Slowly you and the company of an octopus, rises toward the surface of the water as the track progresses.
As recorded live at Ionosonde studios on March 15, 2013. All tracks were produced by Richard Sudney (Telegraphy) 2013.
In Insomnia the idea was to make a little different electronika, working in the new album of a friend from Canada, djrefugeeSW makes many samples of bass guitar and distorsion, then he thaught in use it in his new EP (Insomnia) using this experience with sampler, trying to make house but different house, today house is synthetic music, no heart, no soul… many djs doing good but synthetic production.
One of the Kahvi artists whose releases are always consistently epic and cool is Acrilic Colors, and gladly we welcome him back to Kahvi in 2013 with a small but perfectly formed four track 4 entitled Ab Origine.
Expressive textures and chilled ambience build the usual sublime Acrilic style, ranging from the atmospheric ‘last vanishing meter of infinite’ which gets you into the ambient mood, to the ‘just begging to be part of an orb album’ Aboriginal dawn (perhaps the title is a nod towards the ambient masters themselves?)
Enjoy this great release from one of Kahvi’s favourite artists!
volcano radar is a fusion of ecstatic improvisational energy and apollonian intellect. a power quartet with dual free jazz/noise/avant guitarists elbio barilari and julia a. miller, legendary bassist harrison bankhead and incendiary drummer avreeayl ra, volcano radar moves fluently through a stylistic range from noise-funk improvisation to structured sonic forms.
their debut album, refutation of time, consists of an improvised set that was recorded at experimental sound studio in chicago on february 26, 2013.
andrea pensado works with sound as a performer, composer and teacher. she has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. she studied in argentina and poland. at first she composed mainly for acoustic instruments, however, she gradually felt more attracted by different sound realms. today, the abrasive digital noise of her improvisations is far away from her earlier pieces. harsh dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice, combine hybrid synthesis and sampling techniques to create a highly personal sound language, which reflects an intuitive, emotional and paradoxically also logical approach to music making. she currently lives in the united states.
teraz, tak!, her first album for pan y rosas, begins with a solo performance by andrea and is followed by a series of duets between andrea and the musicians: walter wright, davindar singh, adriana de los santos and alexei borisov who provide additional electronics, saxophone, piano and guitar respectively.
Just like the last one, this Deftechnixks album was recorded based on Deaf Techniques, this time techniques DT01 (recorded without hearing the recorded track and without looking at the instrument) and to a larger extent DT11 (recorded without hearing the recorded track). This resulted in 12 songs, which, after a long consideration, were reduced to a six-track EP in order to not torture the listener too much. The lyrics were again written based on a stream of consciousness; the title and the look of the cover were selected out of all lyrics by a random number generator, as well as track order. The placement of cover elements were selected by another random generator, a two-year old.

Picking up right where the project last left its listeners, furniture music #2 is a high bitrate sequel to the lobit volume 1 released on the SPubsidiary SPTOtfSP (catalog number 011), consisting of all new material except for furniture music #14 – cheap soundtrack for daily accidents, which originally appeared on Hal McGee’s Cheap and Plastic compilation. isteronproject describes its sound as principally what it calls furniture music, “a low-budget parody of the commercial music, inspired by people as residents, devo and, of course, erik satie,” qualified with the further labels kraut punk and cheapadelic. The reference to the Residents feels particularly accurate, especially on the plodding, playful last piece; listeners familiar with the Residents’ Commercial Album will quickly find themselves anticipating the familiar refrain “I wish I was a picnic boy”. Much like the bands mentioned in the genre description, the structure and execution of the songs on furniture music #2 are simple, odd, and quite catchy, with the jovial quality of songs children sing to themselves. In fact, the melody to the song furniture music #13 – corna prendete aria, was first conceived between isteronproject’s Stefano Balice and his cousin when they were children. The instrumentation is also threadbare, consisting of two small Casio keyboards, a small circuit bent Yamaha keyboard, and two Korg pocket-sized ribbon synths. In its very essence, furniture music #2 exemplifies the lo-fi aesthetic, that stripped of complex songs and fancy recording setups, an artist’s true talent and ingenuity can shine through.

El primer disco de Arín Dodó con La Gramola Netlabel consta de seis temas de una duración total de poco más de media hora. Es un trabajo que exige a quien lo escucha y no válido para oídos cómodos, pero realmente fascinante y que merece el esfuerzo de entrar en él.
Este trabajo está dedicado a Alberto Díaz Díaz, miembro y fundador de Arín Dodó.

Cagey House has been releasing music since 2005.This music has always had an underlying pop cheeriness,but also a healthy disregard for structure and a fondness for abstraction.The tracks in Stations Alive show this by featuring melodies and rhythms which rise up out of the general chaos and then float away without any regard for verse or chorus. This produces an effect at once disorienting and engaging.
Somewhere in the West, in a day like any other day, at a time when no one could tell the time, there was no hope. During the Nuclear Winter of 2013, which we are still in the process of, you just don’t know it yet, a factory stood well was buried underground. Inside was a giant computer system and this was the only known recording of the infamous last days when fish still swam and didn’t walk on land. It’s also a story about how the Goddess was found and what was done to here afterwords. May Dogma help you all.

The philosophy of cosmicism states that there is no recognizable divine presence, such as God, in the universe, and that humans are particularly insignificant in the larger scheme of intergalactic existence, and perhaps are just a small species projecting their own mental idolatries onto the vast cosmos, ever susceptible to being wiped from existence at any moment. This also suggested that the majority of undiscerning humanity are creatures with the same significance as insects in a much greater struggle between greater forces which, due to humanity’s small, visionless and unimportant nature, it does not recognize.
From the deepest depths of R’lyeh, here come the Sons of Dagon, born to establish a personal introspective of the narratives of H.P. Lovecraft with five unconventional, inhuman and not-so-musical soundscapes by Attila777, E.F. and Tommaso Busatto.
Enjoy and… keep worshipping The Ancient Ones!
Italy’s Pioggia d’ambra describes its new mini-album Il triste inverno animico as “depressive ambient,” and it is such a fitting description. Each track has an atmosphere that brings to mind the ambient sections of DSBM bands like Russia’s All The Cold and Epitimia and the depressive jam band Deep-Pression. Hollow guitar phrases occasionally ring out amongst a hazy, dark atmosphere of lush washes of sound, odd mechanical sighing, and processed industrial clanking, like a lost astronaut adrift in the swirling galaxy, or perhaps a death industrial Sigur Rós. Il triste inverno animico is an amazing exercise in the power of subtlety.
It is Saito Koji-time again. He worked with labels like Kokeshidisk, Somehow Recordings, SEM , taâlem, Magic Book Records, Kesh Recordings, Gears of Sand Recordings, Median Recordings and element perspective. And he already released eight previous releases via Resting Bell.
His latest contribution to the Resting Bell-catalog is really huge. It is a five hour work. 16 titles with a duration of 4:33 minutes each and five long forms with 39 minutes to 48 minutes. The sixteen short tracks play with a distorted and rough tone. Little guitar miniatures are hidden under a dense curtain of hiss and dust. The long forms are coming with a cleaner guitar sound, playing with extrem short patterns, soft droning waves or swirling melodies.
Enjoy this massive work and thanks a lot for this wonderfull contribution, Saito.
“Winter is drawing closer as Jack Frost curls his icy palm around much of the globe. The mood changes from one of melancholy to preservation, as snow falls, nature hibernates and the ground turns to concrete.”
It gets even stranger when you realize that Joevs new EP Arc is not meant to be a sophisticated statement or a concept album. Instead, he simply wrote a letter. You know, like your parents did, to speak to someone dear and even more to themselves. The outcome is something heavy and haunting, carried by his Notwistesque voice and eventually broken by all sorts of distorted field recordings.
Musical project by Francesco Vecchi from Milano, an already known artist in Nostress Netlabel with the moniker Jenseits. His new debut with the pseudonym Etterem is a project “soaked” with musicality and different genres and bravely places to live entirely together in an innovative and unusual mixture that himself defines Electro Dark Irish. Conjunctions and contamination of traditional music / popular (in this case Irish) and in a strong alliance with bravely and electronic psychedelia all mixed up with the key of the “loop” and “obsessive repetition.” Nostress Netlabel could not remain indifferent to this kind of experimentalism and avant-garde as in this case and decided to characterize this project and make it even more unique promoting it and distributing it in electronic digital format and also, for fans of the genre, vinyl creating a new catalog and reported exclusively refered to projects of all innovative and special. The artist Etterem performed his LP “Dark Irish.Some Tunes” during the event NN Live 001, first edition of periodic events organized by Nostress Netlabel with the aim of promoting live performances and publications in digital and on various media in order to focus more attention on the activities of the label through the diffusion of the music catalog through the use of “vintage taste” support like vinyl.

Rete del Disagio (the uneasiness network) is not a band, and has no stable line-up.
Rete del Disagio was born when followers and supporters from different web communities as upupachan, vaporized art movement, deep lake records and mav [0kbps] records, start to physically meet to bring the noise from the net to the streets.
La Rete del Disagio non è una band, e non ha una formazione stabile.
La Rete del Disagio è nata quando frequentatori e sostenitori di diverse comunità del web come upupachan, movimento arte vaporizzata, deep lake records e mav [0kbps] records, hanno cominciato ad incontrarsi fisicamente per portare il rumore dalla rete alle strade.
British guitarist John Bisset presents a fantastic selection of his film soundtracks. Originally released on YouTube, the music has been remastered to super Hi-Fi quality.
“I sat in the sun, with the birds making merry, and played my guitar; I took refuge from the rain, wind and even snow, and played my guitar; I repaired the van, and when it was coffee time, I played. In motion, whether on foot or behind the wheel, I sang. As in any other improvising situation I had various options: to follow, to mimic, to conjoin, to oppose, to play on in spite of the racket going on around, to rest on the ambience like a ground bass, or even not to improvise at all but to play a tune… ”
For this album I have selected those pieces which stand alone without imagery.” -from John Bisset’s sleeve notes.
Available as a free download with accompanying 14 page PDF booklet, and as a numbered, limited edition double pack of DVD and audio CD.

Proiekt Massage was a short lived project from 2002 – 2003. The Slovenian band consisted of Yoshi (kruh), Samo (Automassage), and Rok (Neuf Meuf, Automassage, kruh). In that year they produced only one EP. No-Source is pleased to be able to share this archived work with you. The music is experimental and lo-fi in composition and sound. Electronica, ambient, post rock, noise influence throughout. Melody and noise compete throughout. There is definitely some similarities between Proiekt Massage and other projects by band member Rok. Share and enjoy.
Background Radiation, is the electronic pop duo Ludo Maas & Tim Dwyer. Their sound sits somewhere nicely between Tunng and Apparat. They have been slowly amassing music for this full length album since 2008. “Uniform Static” is a collection new work that is their most engaging, polished yet. It is an extremely percussive album, sharing similarities with their “False Start ep”. Electronic drums pulse and click along all twelve tracks. A lot the the instruments found on their “Moot Point ep” also make an appearance on this album. Many of the songs lyrics delve into ramblings of space, dreams, and memories.

I never shall see the world again
as i saw it once – the sunlight, the rain,
the spring and the autumn, the starry night,
the sea and the woods and the moon’s full light.I never shall see it quite as of old –
the sunset’s red and the noonday’s gold;
for I never shall see it henceforward now
except through your love, I scare know how.Then be careful, my dearest, how you go,
for from under your feet the rivers shall flow;
and never again will the world be fair
except in the light of your eyes and your hair. by Wallace B Nicols
